This is an awesome study abroad program with the ability to complete tons of certifications and simultaneously receiving college credit. The summer trip was very busy with lots of fun activities planned so there are no "off-days". Living aboard an 88 foot boat with 20 other people is actually less stressful and more comfortable than you might assume! It was an incredibly unique experience and I would highly recommend it for a study abroad program. Adjusting to academics on board is the most difficult part but I think that just takes time and would be easier with a longer trip. Completing the academics and multiple certifications in the 40 day trip was a pretty tight squeeze, if I could do it again I would take a longer trip so I could spend more time enjoying the experience and less time stressing over all of the different exams.
